  • Want to work in arts management but not sure how to start out?

  • Are you a disabled person or do you come from a culturally diverse background?

  • Are you based in (or close to) Yorkshire?

If you can answer yes to the questions above, there is a new placement programme that might be just what you are looking for to kick start your career in the dance, literature or music sector.

We are currently recruiting for five paid and supported work placements at Ilkley Literature Festival, Yorkshire Dance Centre, Opera North, Peepal Tree Press or Balbir Singh Dance Company.

The placements will be for 6 months full time or approximately 9 months full time and provide you with 1-1 and small group support, as well as support for the host organisations. Each placement will be funded by a grant of up to £9,500.

More info is at please look under placement programme

You can also phone Mark Wright for further info - office: 01347 889109, mobile: 07788 768543 Or e-mail:[email protected] or [email protected]

Having managed a small but influential mental health literature group for the last 9 years, the management placement is just what I was looking for as the next step beyond the fairly closed confines of Leeds Survivor's Poetry.

Hopefully the placement will prove to be the link between now (where I'm stuck in a rut) and the future (with employment in an Arts management role).

(But as Mrs Beaton would have said "First get your placement......!)
